Changing the Game - Amsterdam 2022

Whose Bodies? Our Bodies!

Panel discussion
Location Black room - Ru Paré

Chris Lebeaustraat 4
Amsterdam

Action group Trans Zorg Nu! brings together a panel to talk about the struggle for autonomy by those who experience transphobia, fatphobia, ableism, saneism, racism, antisexworker bias and other forms of oppression within health care systems.

When we think of oppression, we often picture cops and prisons. But what if your oppressor is your doctor, and your struggle takes place when you are most vulnerable?

Paneldiscussion with:
Hazar (she/her) is active at Feminists Against Ableism and will speak about racism and ableism in mental health care (GGZ).

Karlijn (she/her/they/them), neurodiverse activist, author, and active at Mad Pride, will speak about repressive neuronormativity and forced 'care' against people described by the state as 'confused'/'disturbed' ('verwarde personen').

Kim (they/them), cofounder of Queer the Hague, will speak about transphobia, fatphobia and antisexworker bias at GPs and in mental health care (GGZ).

Our own Felix will speak about transphobia, racism and ableism in mental health care (GGZ) and in child protection systems (Jeugdzorg).
